Kara, Erinn and I have been out canvassing our neighbourhoods around the 22nd annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive. It runs from Monday November 14 until next Monday November 21st. Each time we have been out we have managed to gather a bag or 2 of clothing. It has been a great way to get out to talk to people in our community around a good cause.
Each year Realtors from all over The Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley Real Estate Boards band together to gather the following items for the homeless and those in need in preparation for our cold winters.
This year, again, the Blanket Drive is focusing on collecting new or gently used:
- sleeping bags
- blankets of all types, including twin sheets
- coats and jackets for women, men and children (especially plus sizes)
- gloves, toques, scarves, mittens, slippers
Several charities are also requesting new socks, underwear and pillows.
Give us a call we would be happy to pick up any donations or visit the following link to see the list of drop off locations in your area:
